Dhaka building collapse: Amputee Rikta Begum on life after Rana Plaza

24 October 2013 Last updated at 22:02 BST

Six months ago, more than 1,100 people were killed when an eight-storey clothing factory collapsed on the outskirts of Bangladesh's capital Dhaka.

Many of those who survived were seriously injured and have not be able to go back to work.

Rikta Begum is one of them. Her right arm had to be amputated after it was trapped when the Rana Plaza building fell.

She spoke to the BBC's Akbar Hossain about her memories of that traumatic day and how, half a year on, she has little hope for her future prospects.
